This is clearly a first class resort course. However that also means that there are wide fairways, well placed but avoidable trouble and I found it a little repetitive. It winds its way up from the highway and there are great views from the top...More

This golf course charges premium green fee rates, but delivers a 3rd rate golf experience. The views of the Pacific from some holes are great. The condition of the greens was just plain poor. Many had uneven blotches of fungus. After the round of golf,...More

My wife and I love this golf course. Links style set up in beautiful shape. Great views, lots of elevated tees and in very good shape. The forward tees for the ladies are more than fair. Definitely a favorite course on the big Island.

I love this golf course. Can be very challenging when a wind is blowing. The shop staff are friendly and the range and practise area are superb. They also have these funky scooters if you want to go solo. The greens are very slick, so...More

We had a great time on this challenging but not too challenging course with beautiful views of the NW coast of the Island. Because it's on the dry end of the Island we were never rained on during our round and the temperature was balmy...More
